    Hi all, I'm excited to be a part of this group! My weight fluctuates a lot with my stress (I'm in my residency for the next year), but I have decided to do what I can to lose pounds and start eating healthier meals. Being 5'1", a few pounds have a lot of impact on how my clothes fit. Looking forward to the support of this group!
  • Hi everyone!

    I am 23, 5'3 and new to the group. I have a small frame and my current weight of 142 is too much (IMO) for my frame! I would like to be 115-120 by my wedding 4/6/13. I feel, we have to work so much harder to keep even the smallest amount of weight off in order to keep our figures! It is SO nice to have support from other petites :)

    My weight loss began 2 years ago. To date, I have lost 30 lbs, but I am steadfastly maintaining in the 140-145 range. Time to break the plateau! Consistency is my problem these days.

    I put my name on the spreadsheet and I am very excited to get started with you all!

    Hi, I am Rhonda.. but Nareena is just fine. It's a rl and online nickname so it works just as well ;)

    I am 5' 2" and my starting weight was 240 lbs in Aug 2012. I've been working out, eating better and watching my cals on MFP. I bought a FitBit last month and I love it. I am small framed, but I've always been big chested, so that's been a lot of my weight even when I was thin lol.

    SW 15Aug2012: 240 lbs
    CW 11Nov2012: 211.2 lbs
    GW: 130'ish (will reevaluate when I get there)

    Janine here. I am barely 5'3"...need to lose about 20-ish pounds (30 if you go by the height weight chart hahahahaha!). I am a mother of two with thyroid issues...so, weight is an issue. Work, kids, health. Hard to keep it up sometimes! I lost over 30lbs a year and a half ago....and here I am back at it again. Hoping once I lose the weight this time, I learn how to maintain better...:bigsmile:
  • Hi I'm Allison. I am 5'2" and need to lose a lot! I am a mother of 2 boys and this time it will happen. I have been down the "diet" road before and obviously haven't kept the weight off! It's all good though this time it's different, this time I really get it and have been doing a pretty good job if I do say so myself! 34 pounds down and couldn't be any more proud of myself! Loving this new body that is appearing!

    Hi, i'm Alexis :)
    I am 5'2 with over 90 lbs to lose maybe more.
    Feel free to add me if you like!
  • Hello everyone! I'm 5'2' 1/2", and I need to lose about 35 more lbs! Add me if you'd like, I'm a self-proclaimed veteran of weight issues my entire life, but I have never let it deter me! I was 279 lbs at my heaviest. Right now, I am 205. I went off Herbalife almost 4 years ago, and thankfully never gained all the weight back (228 was when I started Curves Complete). Right now, I weigh the same I did when I was 16!

    Hi. My name is Abby, I am 5'1.75" so I usually round it up to 5'2" :P I have been on MFP for about a week and lost 2 lbs! I figured it was time to join some groups and find more friends :D Can't wait to see what this group has to offer.

    Hello! I'm Amanda, I'm 22 years old and I'm 5'2" (and a half!!!!). :D I was on MFP last year for a good while then sort of took a hiatus/break while I searched for full-time employment. Now that I have ensured that I have such employment - a new job that I hope to be starting in a week or two! - I'm ready to get back on track and start getting down to business to be a healthier and happier person. I want to be a bit more active in groups this time and I'd figure I'd be more comfortable in a group around my own height. :) Feel free to add me as a friend!
